New drug QSYMIA available only by mail order via CVS & Walgreens

This is from the package insert as published on their website…

Store at controlled room temperature, 15 to 25°C (59 to 77°F). Keep container tightly closed and protect from moisture.

This drug has been placed in Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) FDA program… the problem – according to the literature – is the same with ACCUTANE… which is available via community pharmacies…

Since this is a “female” issue… shouldn’t community pharmacies be allowed to dispense it to males.. are do males never go on diets?

So there is no risk for shipping this drug and not GUARANTEEING that it stays within it required storage temperature?
